    I'm super bummed my husband didn't make it home in time to watch the kids so I could go and I was really looking forward to this. Definitely next time!

    I'm disappointed to have to change to a 'no' - had to work late and just rolling up at home. I hope there will be more sewing craftiness next time - I'm looking forward to photos from tonight's event! Have fun!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
